If your child has a reading disability, dyslexia, and/or attention deficit disorder (ADHD), you will find assistive technology for dyslexia and reading disabilities will help your child overcome many problems with learning.

Assistive Technology for Dyslexia and Reading DisabilitiesSince the majority of educational content comes in the form of books, having dyslexia or a specific reading disability can severely impact a child’s ability to learn if he doesn’t have assistance. This is where assistive technology for dyslexia and reading disabilities can enable your child to read independently, learn to read better, and it will help your child learn from books.

If you want to help your child overcome his reading disability, check out the information on LearningAbledKids.com about how to remediate dyslexia. You CAN help your child overcome dyslexia!

There is a wide variety of tools you can use as assistive technology for dyslexia and reading disabilities. I’ve included high, medium, and low tech solutions so you can choose the assistive technology solutions that will help your child most. I’ve also included information about assistive technology for writing, math, and executive functioning (ADHD) elsewhere on this site too.
